Downtown fashion show a memorable occasion

We had so much fun on Nov. 1, at the Style Downtown “Fashion Through the Decades” show hosted by Chapter FY, PEO and held at TreadZ.

It was rewarding to have so many talented people in the community assist us in making the event memorable.

Models, representing decades from the 20s to the present, danced down the runway inspired by Christina Brusig and Emily Fout from the Glenwood Center for the Arts.

Clothing stores; TreadZ, Anderson’s Clothing, Confetti Design, a la Carte, Posh, Mona Lisa, Lilys Finer Consigner, Elizabeth Dean, Biker and the Witch, Sport Shop at Glenwood Hot Springs, inspired us with fashions.

Speaker Cyn Cyr informed and entertained us.

Jack Green, Camp Chair Productions, provided lighting and Patrick Duprey, Full Circle Productions, was our talented DJ.

Sanctuary Spa and Salon, Southern Comfort and 7th Avenue Salon created hairdos and makeovers that took us way, way back.

Laura Speck, owner of Silver Bead and I directed the show. Laura’s dramatic flair, musical knowledge and stage direction were invaluable.

The owners of Cooper Wine & Spirits, a liquor store opening soon in Glenwood, served delicious wines. Favorite restaurants like Riviera, Pullman, 19th Street Diner, Zheng’s, Fins, Grind, Rivers, Slope & Hatch, Morrisons and Grand Avenue Sweets tantalized us with appetizers and desserts.

Flower Mart, Real Deals and the Frontier Historical Society contributed to creating an environment reminiscent of days gone by.

Kelly Cory, owner of KO Creations, designed our posters.

Thank you for helping us provide scholarships to women motivated to improve their lives.

New Castle LIFT-UP thanks Cub Scout pack 221

Your New Castle LIFT-UP food bank has had another busy year with many of our friends and neighbors struggling to support their families.

On Nov .9, New Castle Cub Scouts pack 221 led by John Harcourt collected over 800 bags of nonperishables and delivered them to LIFT-UP at the River Center. Watching the scouts grow into such caring and giving citizens is a real joy. Their excitement and enthusiasm was contagious and all the volunteers were energized. Scouts and parents were a great help in the sorting process and other eager volunteers have been sorting and organizing as we receive more and more donations.

As the scouts carried in bag after bag of groceries, we were reminded of how lucky we are to be living in such a generous community. To the townspeople who donated, the scouts who picked up the food and the volunteers who help sort and organize it, each and every one of you have our heartfelt thanks.

On Nov. 23, New Castle LIFT-UP provided Thanksgiving dinners for 106 families. Again, our wonderful volunteers made the day and it was a great event for one and all. On Dec. 21, Christmas dinners will be provided as well. Throughout the year, LIFT-UP continues to give emergency assistance on a regular basis at our location on Fourth Street in the River Center on Wednesdays and Fridays between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Happy Holidays and thanks again.

Rifle Creek Golf Course acknowledges help with season

Throughout each season, the Rifle Creek Golf Course hosts a variety of activities. There are competitive tournaments, benefit tournaments, junior programs, men’s and ladies’ leagues plus players from out of town and our own local members.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Golf Course to thank the many sponsors, tournament supporters, staff, volunteers, all players and especially the members who have supported the Golf Course in some way this past season. It was a great season.

A special thank-you goes out to our loyal tournament sponsors: Jay Rickstrew at Alpine Bank, Hans Parkinson at Big H2O, Mark Fregen at Mtn Air Mechanical, and Dean Donaldson at Screamin Eagle Trucking and Excavating. With their help Rifle Creek puts on some of the best competitive tournaments on the Western Slope.

Golf courses run on tight budgets and without the support of so many we would not be able to have the quality golf course and successful events without these many sponsors and supporters.

Thank you again, everyone, for your continued support of the Rifle Creek Golf Course.
